    When neopets and morbid reality collide

    On r/neopets this user posted a thread that they are giving away their inventory because they are dying.

    I am really proud that the community focused on sending her thoughts of good health, wishes, hopes, offers of taking care of her pets and not "I collect this if you have one"

    Stuff like this really makes you think about the people that are behind the screen and sometimes how short life can be. I do hope OP can make it to her 22nd birthday

    Also makes me want to hope every one of y'all has a good day today. That you are safe and warm and with people you love.

    RIP that's gotta be the third person on Neo that I know of (or have known) who are dying/have died. Man, that really sucks for her, I at least hope her condition won't be awful towards the end, my great-grandma died of a metastasized tumor that started taking over her brain mass, her last months of her life were so saddening, she was in so much suffering.

    This is way too intense for me to handle somehow... but if it was me, the last thing I would do if dying would be going to Neopets...
    Still, pretty sad of course. I hope OP isn't trolling, I don't trust the internet u know.

    It would suck if she was. Looking at her post history the last time she posted on that sub was a year ago. I'd like to give her the benefit of the doubt.

    If she was trolling, why would she do a giveaway?

    For attention. It's the internet, and there is a whole world of people waiting to jump on these sort of stories. Might get +gold on reddit from it too.

    Reddit gold is as good a reason as any to lie.

    It's the only currency worth anything. RIP- the Japanese Yen.

    Lying or not, things like this always get to me a little. How upsetting.

    It's always sad when Neo gets too real. I'm glad to see everyone is sending her positive vibes and I hope they will live the rest of their life nicely.

    IDK, it sort of feels like a really dark thing to troll about.
